Keeping the leading pace for thirty-four revolutions, Matt Westfall would appear to be in winning form until lap traffic would alter his plans as Zach Daum would overtake the lead just past the mid-race point with Thomas Meseraull following into the lead pack with Cannon McIntosh also racing into winning contention.


Striking late, Thomas Meseraull would move into the lead with eight laps remaining and hold the front through all sorts of challenges for the front of the field to capture his second feature victory of 2023 with Cannon McIntosh taking the runner-up spot coming out of the final corners as Zach Daum finished a close third. 


“MF1 BABY, we moved rides and it was kind of a struggle but we put in the work and this thing is a rocket,” said the victorious Thomas Meseraull in the Southern Illinois Center winners circle. Adding, I was almost out of midget racing but Tim Engler just doesn’t give up. I knew if this thing wheelied straight it would be gold and I can tell you that this is what dreams are made of to build our wins.”


Staying in the hunt all event, Matt Westfall would finish fourth with Joe B Miller rounding out the POWRi National top-five finishers in the Jr Knepper 55 running inside at the Southern Illinois Center.
